At my daughter’s school they adopted a ‘no excuses’ policy this year. This means that every single kid, teacher, staff and admin is called to action to do their very best, every day.
That got me thinking about my own excuses. In what areas of my life am I not playing full out and why? Interesting?
This is the list I came up with:
In my business:
– I don’t have enough time
– I don’t know how
– I can’t decide
– I don’t have the right equipment
– If I had the perfect idea
In my relationship:
– It’s not my fault
– Why me?
– He does not get it
– I can’t help it
– He does not really care
And the list could go on …
How about you? Do you use excuses for not getting what you want, for not being as successful as you could be and for not having all the fun in the world?
This is what I am going to do. For one week I will put my excuses to the side and do the things I actually really want to do: write quality content for my website and blog, outline an e-book about self coaching and start working on a coaching CD. I also want to take some time every day and do some creative writing. This is something I have been wanting to do for a very long time. By the end of the week I will let you know how things have been working out.
If you want to play the game, you can start by making your excuses list and then set a goal to do the things you really want to do for one day, two days, or a full week.
Sounds like fun? Let me know what happens. And, if you are one of the few people who does not use excuses, how do you do it? I’d love to find out.

Yes, I am one of the people who does not use excuses. I created something called “The Blame Game.” It’s in my free download called “The Project Prosperity Smart Start Guide.” You can get it at http://www.cheetahlearning.com/prosperity.asp.
